Verizon Provides Mobile Device Mgt for Government Agencies

Verizon has begun providing a carrier-neutral Mobility Management for Government (MMG) service to help federal agencies protect physical and intellectual assets for mobile users.

Specific components of the hosted MMG solution include:

  • Mobile Security Shield - Anti-virus and spam security protection for mobile PDAs and mobile operating systems.

  • Mobile Virtual Private Network - The VPN is compliant with FIPS 140-2 and provides secure connectivity back to agency applications.

  • Mobile Infrastructure and Device Management - Manages mobile devices for the agency, delivering tools, applications and data to employees, where and when required, while creating and enforcing flexible mobile policies across the agency.

  • Wireless Expense and Asset Management System - Tracks mobile assets, usage and spending, delivering consolidated and departmental reports.

Verizon MMG, which is an expansion of the company's Managed Mobility portfolio for enterprises, is available immediately under the U.S. General Services Administration's Washington Interagency Telecommunications System (WITS 3) contract and as an IT solution using the Alliant contract. The solution complies with the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 140-2 and applicable Security Technical Implementation Guide security guidelines for federal agencies.
